Having created a formula for this distribution, doing the necessary integration and creating estimators for the parameters we could create some confidence intervals for the mean height and weight. I'd rather create a multivariate linear regression to estimate an SF members weight based on their height and the size of items of clothes they've bought and sold and if they lift. We may have to use some time series for how long ago they bought the clothes. We could probably get an R value of like 0.8.

I think Superbobo has like a masters or Phd in stats so he'd probably be better at this.

you're drunk (or posing) if you think you'd get an R(squared) of .8 from any 'natural' data set.

The post is a joke, I don't think anyone here is creating a linear regression model on sf members height and weight. I just put a random number in, apologies for not using realistic numbers for my theoretical regression model. Please if you would like to go ahead and write in a more realistic number go ahead.
ah, fair enough...given the model you specified, weight as y, height and clothes size as x, think something in the range of .2 would even be optimistic. likely lots of error as well (ie, big confidence intervals around coefficient estimates).

fuji's first approach to create unbiased estimators is quite reasonable.  I wouldn't a priori assume a distribution Chi^2 distribution.  I would treat it as a gamma distribution, and do what fuji says.

lol, what? distribution of the dependent variable doesn't matter provided they're IID and the errors are assumed (and checked) to be normal.

Take Reedobandito, for example. height 5'10", or thereaobuts. Weight 160lb +/- 20lb, if I read his posts correctly.

Size XS!!!!!

Then there's Mr Moo! Height 5'5", or therebouts. Weight 295 lb, by his own admission last Tuesday!

Size S!!!!!!

There will be absolutely no correlation between weight and clothing size!

I would be far more concerned about reporting error (a systematic bias in the sampling), because of Styleforum members consistently underreporting their weight and clothes size.

MIRAN ?
Who cares.
fuck miran

in order to get this thread back on track and flaming people for dressing poorly instead of whatever the hell is going on now, I am going to post an mc fit with "slippers" so you all can get back to doing what you do best

good, good, feel the hate flow through you

i actually really like the fit of everything, but yeah not feeling the footwear.

also, since this is a weekend and no one's telling you what to do, I'd either go all out and rock a textured tie or lose the shirt and ps and don a tee for dat SWD uniform look. your current look is pretty good but lacking in punch nameen

edit: wait, are those jeans? aiiight definitely go with a tee unless you're more of a serious chap, in which case carry on with the current look
Challenged myself to wear blue jeans. Further challenged myself to wear boots with them instead of sneakers. Haha.
And yes I tried not cuffing and it looked bad so I don't wanna hear it

Geller

Also dogsitting

Also fit pic of dip dye sized up 2 that someone asked to see in the Geller thread
(was spoilered since I just posted a dip dye last week but ah fuck it)
